Miriam has been described as “something of a renaissance woman ……Somehow she achieves the almost impossible in blending patterned western-ed pop writing with the earthy mystique of African rhythms and freaky world instruments.” (Sydney City News).
Miriam Lieberman is a singer songwriter with a unique perspective. She accompanies her powerful vocals with kora ( 21-stringed African harp) and acoustic guitar, performing as a soloist and with her trio: Kate Adams (Cellist) and Lara Goodridge (Violinist). Despite this unusual mix of pure classical instruments and something made from a large gourd strung with fishing line there is a musical chemistry between these players and their instruments that melds into a soaringly beautiful soundscape.
Miriam’s music blends well-crafted songs with powerful and emotive performance. Her unique musical style has developed out of long periods of time spent immersed in the distant places and cultures of the music that inspires her and most of all out of a passion for song writing and performance. In Miriam’s latest album Birds of the Moon these influences are the layers underneath what is Australian contemporary folk music with a somewhat cosmopolitan undertone.
The concert marks the release of Miriam’s fourth album, BIRDS OF THE MOON in August 2014. The album has been produced at Endomusia studios by Josh Schuberth. At the forefront are Miriam’s soulful vocals, 21 string African harp (kora) and percussive styled guitar as well as Kate Adams and Lara Goodridge on cello and violin. Added is the hypnotic percussion and bass played by Schuberth. There is a blend of beautiful filmic arrangements as well as stripped back songs of just kora and voice. Prepare for an album that travels in mood from the sinister beauty of the Indian city of Varanasi, A Mexican love story and the bright hope of dawn.
